Time at Club:
Aston Villa are managed by Dean Smith who replaced Steve Bruce in October 2018.
Up until recently Aston Villa were in an elite group of seven clubs who had been in the Premier League since its inauguration in 1992. However, the club's 29-year stay in the top-flight (including the years preceding the Premier League) came to a miserable end in 2015/16 after they suffered the dreaded drop out of the division.
But under the leadership of Smith they are now back in the big time.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Aston Villa collect wins versus Wolverhampton Wanderers, Brighton & Hove Albion, Norwich City & Brighton & Hove Albion while suffering adverse results at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool, Manchester City & Arsenal. Draws against Burnley & West Ham United has seen them show mid-table form at best.
